Leaping Frog Tatting Shuttle    Sometime back we fitted new wooden blinds in our house and we ended up with slats left over. Since we often like to “re-purpose” things we find, Dave made some lightweight tatting shuttles out of the extra blinds.    This shuttle is 3 1/4 inches long by 1 1/8 inch wide and 1/8 inch thick, and has been adorned with a "Leaping Frog" using pyrography (burn etching). by Penny Charman

Wearable magic! Write your wish on a piece of paper, put it in the scroll and wear until your wish comes true.  The scrolls are made of leather, and often they are finished with (silver) beads. Each wish scroll comes on an adjustable cord, so you can determine yourself how high or low you wear it. It will become darker and shiny from the oils of your skin.    Every wish scroll is handmade and truly unique. The design is 100% mine. I got inspired by the description of “Ethiopian wish scrolls” some 8-10 years ago when studying for my BA bookbinding degree. Five years ago I made the first scroll (see below), as I imagined it should look like. Since then there have come many more, in different shapes and colours, and the new owners give happy reports of wishes coming true. Here at home we also have two content wish scroll wearers, yours truly and her partner. by christine

Chicken Swing! It's a great cheep<-(haha) way to keep birds from boredom! We put one up in each of our two coops after a tree fell down. We used some of the limbs and some rope to make a chicken swing. They really seem to like it. Sometimes, my bantam cochin Jill will sit up in it and go to sleep! by lara

Our new family organizational system. Magnetic wipe off boards from Walmart $2 a piece. Used vinyl machine to add names and the words to do and done. Took pictures of the chores we have at our house and added a magnetic to the back. Mail slots and Menu board are from Walmart too. I just added the vinyl wording to them. So nice to have a spot for the kids to put the mail when they bring it in. by siofra

Sony has been developing PlayStation games and consoles since 1994, when it first released the PlayStation in Japan. Since then, PlayStation has gone under a few major changes and redesigns, progressing through the PS2 to the PS3, and now the new PS4 will be released in December 2013. The new Dualshock Controller will have a touch pad and a movement sensor – brand new features added on to the classic PlayStation controller that we all know and love! The PlayStation controller has been black since the PlayStation 2 console released in 2000, and it looks like the new PlayStation controller will follow that trend. The first PlayStation controller that was completely wireless came out in 2006 with the PlayStation 3, and the new controller will also be wireless too – a common trend for all gaming consoles in our modern technology! The top selling PS3 game sold over 7.3 million units – Gran Turismo 5! Will a new Gran Turismo come out soon for the PlayStation 4? Since it was originally released, the PlayStation console sold 120.49 million consoled, the PlayStation 2 console sold 150 million units, and the PlayStation 3 console sold 57 million units. This new console releasing in 2013 may be what PlayStation needs to bring their sales back up with a new console, better features, faster hardware, and top of the line technology. by vibrantyouthe4

Designer Sabrina Soto's favorite paint colors: I love the Manchester tan for our new living room color and maybe the old navy as the wall directly across from the bar in the kitchen!!  - someone else wrote the previous but I liked it.  Pretty neutral so pops of color are definitely needed and they are kinda "capey" but I like them.  (I think we have some of these colors in P'cola). by Melaniemilasofia
